Deadlock 0.4.8 is online running on Unity 4 with several bugfixes as well as a major maintenance overhaul.
Getting access to Deadlock
Deadlock version 0.4.8 is online and available to all Spearheads, Frontliners and Vanguards. This version continues our commitment to Open Door Development which provides access to Deadlock, while it’s being developed. Remember that you can get access to Deadlock and help speed-up the development of Interstellar Marines by upgrading your profile to Spearhead or Frontliner in our [Store].
Since the last build we’ve moved into our new (and smaller) office in an effort to save money and keep developing on the game.
After the move we started migrating the project to Unity 4 (from previously running on Unity 3.5), which unfortunately took a lot longer than we had planned for. Basically there were some fundamental changes in the new engine which caused a lot of small problems with our old pipeline and code.
As a result almost all of the time for the last 3 weeks have been spent cleaning up and getting everything to work again in the new engine. So this build turned out to be mostly about maintenance. Fortunately there’s been some nice optimizations in our workflow, and we fixed a couple of vital bugs in the process that had been around for a while.
But most importantly we are now set-up in new offices and on the latest version of Unity, so we can get back to progressing the actual game from here on out!
FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Your team at Zero Point Software
